I am currently growing tomatoes, lebanese cucumbers, raddish, capsicum, spinach, parsley and potato has popped up from last year!

I have not grown fruit.
I have a wonderful set up thank to my horticulturalist son who I flew down from darwin to set it all up -I do not have to bend to pick things, and I really enjoy growing these things even though I have had little luck due to caterpillars and snails up until now.

I prefer growing herbs as they seem to handle my lack of care far better.
I have never grown fruit but have grown a few vegetables, not seriously though really... spuds, tomatoes, carrots and some herbs

I have grown flowers, but not fruits and vegetables.
Just Tomatoes, and Lettuce, Potatoes and Onions.
They were to die for :) the taste is so much better.
I have planted a few fruit trees but they are a fair way off actually producing fruit. I'm growing some berries and citrus.
Yes, we grow spinach, cucumbers, capsicum, raddish, parsley, basil (though that is dead now) potatoes, beans, lettuce, rocket, tomatoes, lemons, oranges, madarins and grapefruit. It can be a lot of work, but I think it is worth it.

you do a lot! are u in nsw?
the cold and storms here in WA have half killed my lovely tomatoes.

I can't take all the credit, haha. My husband's grandfather does a lot too. Though I imagine my husband and I will be doing a lot more given that his pop is going into hospital again soon. Yes, we are in NSW. At the moment, nothing is growing but the spinach, rocket and lettuce. I can't wait for the warmer months.

Forgot to mention -if you buy Eden Seeds and get them posted, they are brilliant -they are the old fashioned type -they have thousands and they grow so well unlike seedlings that kept dying for me.

No but I would love it - need to get a garden first!

We have some citrus trees- one tree is full of lemons right now. Also, tomatoes, Asian greens, snow peas, passionfruit, corn, herbs - all pretty easy to grow. I find carrots hard to grow for some reason?

I've had great success with herbs. Basil, thyme, chives and parsley. This year I had tomatoes in last summer too.
We'd love to but not enough sun in our backyard. Best we can do is a few herbs - if the possums don't eat them
Yes indeed!!! In my childhood we had all the seasonam ones fron sweet corn, tomatoes and lettuce.to potatoes,strawberries,raspberries and bean!!! Too many more to mention were always in the garden during the year! Up here in Nth Qld I always have tomatoes growing,as well as herbs galore! The passionfruit also fruit all year:YUMMM!!!! This climate also allows me to grow limes,lemoons,and other citrus,sweet potato,and many rare troipical fruits as well. I am definitely Blessed beyond any hope and all expectation.
Growing rocket at the moment cause I'm not the greatest of vege gardeners. Did some tomatoes last summer. It's nice to grown something...even if it's just one vege.

Over the years I have grown several types of vegies and herbs. I find it satisfying and it gives you something to talk about with other gardeners. At the moment I am picking silverbeet, rocket, thyme, mint, rosemary and spinach. I have recently planted tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, parsley, dill, zucchinis and lettuce. I plan to plant some more vegies and basil and lemon basil. Last year my son gave me a lemon tree and I am looking forward to picking lemons in the future.
No, we've never grown fruit nor vegetables. We don't get enough sun, shining through the trees!
